Title: We grow cocoa for chocolate


1
We grow cocoa for chocolate
2
Does chocolate grow on trees?
3
Yes! It begins with a tree
  • Chocolate comes from the inside of a cocoa
    bean.

4
Cocoa beans grow inside pods on cocoa trees
5
From cocoa beans to your place
  • The story of chocolate is a story like many other
    foods.
  • It takes many different people doing different
    jobs.

6
Here is a cocoa tree nursery in Papua New
Guinea. Shhhhhh baby chocolate trees are
growing!
7
The baby cocoa trees need looking after. What do
they need?
8
Fiona is by a net which stops coconuts from
falling on the young cocoa trees.
9
Cocoa pods
  • After a few years the trees grow big cocoa
    bean pods. These are nearly ripe for picking.

10
  • When the bean pods get picked they will go to
    the fermentary.
  • The beans are covered in a sticky white goo.
  • They need to ferment for about a week until the
    beans are no longer bitter.

11
The beans go on a boat trip
  • After the wet beans are dried they get put into
    bags. The cocoa beans then go on a boat and
    travel to the mainland about 700km away.

12
  • Planting and growing cocoa was a lot of work. The
    farmer has a family to look after.

13
How much is a bag of beans?
  • The farmer will get paid NZ300 for a 100kg bag
    of beans.
  • Its important he gets paid a fair price.

Why is that?
14
  • The bags of cocoa get sent across the sea. They
    end up at a chocolate factory.

15
There are chocolate factories in PNG.
  • Do we make chocolate in New Zealand?
  • Who do the NZ chocolate factories buy their
    cocoa from?

16
Fair pay, fair price
Next time you buy cocoa or chocolate, check out
the label. Where did it come from? Did the
farmers get paid a fair price?
What can you find out about fair trade chocolate?
17
Would you like to help Jerolyn?
18
The families on Kapo Island need another 35,000
cocoa seedlings.
19
The families on Kapo Island need a strong boat
to take their cocoa beans to the city. A canoe
wont do!
20
Can you raise some money to help?
  • Any ideas?

We would love to be able to help them. But we
need you to help us.
